Bashing Art Critics


The other evening I was reading a blog post written by Jonathan Jones, the art critic for the Guardian. His jumping-off point was how art critics get bashed for saying “I like this” and “I don’t like that”. Jonathan points to a recent interview with Lucien Freud where the artist himself is listing artists he likes and doesn’t. So, artists do it, too – have gut reactions, off the cuff, intuitive responses to artwork. It would appear that we all start off at like and dislike. It’s called taste.

So why do critics get to print their opinions in the New York Times and such? And why do people pay attention? It’s because critics put their visual and emotional reactions to art into words. The thoughtful process of verbalizing what may have been a gut feeling hones our tastes and is essential to the development of judgment. And reading the thoughtful opinion of someone else can cause us to vehemently disagree, and therefore bash.

Freud goes on to dump Delacroix from his likes list, and Jones admits to changing his mind on Delaroche. Critics see a lot of art, and although comparison of better to best does knock good work out of the top spot (i.e. Delacroix), exposure to a large number of paintings is imperative for the maturity of judgment.

So what does this matter to you and me? Whether you are an artist or a collector – or both, recognizing quality in art is key to knowing when to stop working on a painting and when to purchase one. We all start with “I like this” and I don’t like that”. It’s when we start delving into the “Why?” that the true riches of art begin revealing themselves. Look at a lot of art and take the time to know, in words, what you think of it. But, once you articulate your opinion, prepare to be bashed.

Morris Graves, Northwest Mystic Painter


Despite a prodigious creative output spanning six decades and being universally celebrated as one of the most important American painters of 20th century modern art, Morris Graves, who died in 2001, not only remains an enigma but is relatively unknown, especially to younger generations. In part, this is attributable to the fact that Graves himself retreated from the public stage; he eschewed fame. He believed that his artistic contribution had significance only as part of a larger vessel of creative visionary expression.

So it is not surprising that throughout his life he chose not to attend the openings of his exhibitions. Even as Graves continued to retreat into his beloved privacy, constructing his homes and gardens and making art, the extraverted world of abstract expressionism exploded in New York with bolder, brighter, and bigger images and their celebrity-seeking creators, all antipodal to the contemplative, visionary world Graves inhabited.

Graves was a true visionary, a painter who sought that which is eternal. But the search, however, was not without conflict. The burgeoning encroachment of industry and the machines and mentality of human conflict continued to invade Graves’ habitats. He continually sought out places of solitude, both in the United States and in Ireland, finally establishing a remote habitat hidden in the ancient forests of Northern California. His path as a “solitary romantic” from which he breathed in the communion of life’s extraordinary essence was one of natural wonder. From within his gardens, the universe spoke. The inhabitants-small animals, birds, and flora-fed his emplastic powers of cognition, the unifying gift of the imagination.

Recently, I was conversing with an artist who, a decade earlier, had received her bachelor’s degree in art from a credible New York university. When I mentioned the name Morris Graves, she appeared perplexed. She thought the name vaguely familiar, but she had no idea when or where he had lived and knew nothing about his work. Morris Cole Graves, who was born in Fox Valley, Oregon in 1910, was a self-taught artist who became, next to Mark Tobey, the most important visionary artist of the Northwest School. In the early 1940s, Graves’ work was selected to be exhibited as part of the New York Museum of Modern Art’s “Americas 1942”. This event catapulted him to international recognition. Even so, Graves continued to retreat into his beloved privacy, constructing his homes and gardens and making art, while the extraverted world of abstract expressionism exploded in New York with bolder, brighter, and bigger images and their celebrity-seeking creators, all antipodal to the contemplative, visionary world Graves inhabited.

During the Second World War, Graves spent time in a military prison as a conscientious objector. From these early anti-war sentiments evolved his deep interest in and exploration of the philosophies of the Far East, an amalgam of Hinduism, Taoism, and Zen Buddhism-all human constructs, nonetheless reflective of his personal thoughts on the universality and the singularity of nature, the wondrousness of the Way. The imagery that Graves produced was considered unique, but his reasons for making the art were not. They were ancient. For Graves, his animals and flowers represented inner visions of the unconscious, the Atman, symbolic of the potential “self.”

When Morris Graves began his flower paintings of the early seventies, a few critics suggested he had lost his great visual power. They accused him of painting only ‘pretty flowers.’ It no doubt amused him that that is all they saw. Graves’ ability to make palpable the unity of spirit through paint is clearly present in these later works. His form relationships and the inherent interstices, the subtle migration of hues within a single blossom, are things we can and do talk about. The “pneuma” of the art we cannot talk about. We cannot explain. We refer to the painting the way a title refers to the painting, and in fact, I believe, the way the painting itself merely refers to a generative and immutable, creative spirit. The gift is not the painting but the accrued love and generosity of the artist in making the painting and thus it is the act itself that holds the true value. The painting is simply a map for the soul.

2010 marks the centennial year of this remarkable artist. He is no longer here, but, through his paintings, his great longing and love for the ineffable still resonate, binding us one to another.

Digital Fantasy Art – Is It an Advantage or Disadvantage?


Digital fantasy art is becoming more popular, more skilled and more advanced than ever before. Is this relatively new art form worth learning or is it just a pain? Are you better learning it or better staying with traditional mediums?

The answer lies in several areas and depends a lot on you and your outlook to knew technology. Also it depends on whether you see this new medium as an actual art form or simply a technical way of painting by numbers. There are many ways to use this new medium. You can use it as an addition to your traditional art to enhance it in some form. You can use it to create something from scratch. You can use it with the many backgrounds, lighting and models available to you.

The advantages are that it can be used to create true 3D form, something not available in traditional painting mediums which are static forms. The biggest advantages to beginners is it is very forgiving. You can create something and remove it with ease making the creation of something worthwhile much more likely. You can also start with models and backgrounds to aid you in your creation, although you can choose to create your own. This is much more advanced and should be left until you are familiar with all the tools and techniques.

The disadvantages come in part from the advantages. The models can limit your creative process, at least until you have either enough knowledge or enough tools to change them to your liking. The fact that it is very forgiving means that you may over tweak your work or not really know when it is finished or what angles to choose. There are also a lot of avenues to choose from. Just as with traditional mediums you may not know if you want to use oils or watercolour, with digital fantasy art you may not know what equipment to use. As some of this can be expensive to buy it is not a mistake you want to make. Although some people do offer refunds or lite packages which at least gives you the chance to try things out before making a final purchase. Of course you will also need to be proficient on the computer and not worry about using new things. This can be a problem for many people who are at least in part technophobes.

It is possible to create great digital fantasy art with digital technology. Like anything it takes time, patience and a willingness to be open to and to learn new things.

Full Sleeve Tattoo: Information and Tips


A full sleeve tattoo is one that literally covers the arm from shoulder to wrist. The most beautiful full sleeve tattoos are the ones that blend into one flowing tattoo.

In order to achieve this, one must try to envisage the end result before even going to the parlour. Discussing your ideas with the tattoo artist will also greatly help into achieving the look that you are after.

Things may get a bit tricky if you already have some tattoos on some parts of your arm. A professional tattoo artist will be able to offer you various options and ideas of how he can connect all existing tattoos and make them seem as though you had wanted a full sleeve tattoo from the outset.

A common technique that is used to achieve a flowing tattoo, is to add backgrounds to existing tattoos. Popular backgrounds include flame tattoos, smoke and swirls.

If on the other hand, you’re thinking of getting a sleeve tattoo from scratch, then the world is literally your oyster because you have total freedom as to what type of tattoos you can choose.

It is said that the most beautiful full sleeve tattoos are ones which revolve around a specific theme. Favorite themes for full sleeve tattoos include floral designs, Celtic themes, tribal tattoos, Japanese art, religious tattoos and much more.

If you already have a few pieces on your arm, it is imperative that the theme fits these existing tattoos otherwise you will lose the whole flowing effect.

Work closely with your tattoo artist so that you’ll get an idea of how the whole thing would look BEFORE the actual work starts. Have the whole design created on paper first.

If this is your first tattoo or you only have a couple of tattoos, try to talk to different artists so that you’ll get a good feel of what each one is capable of. Then go with the one who is on the same page as you.

A full sleeve tattoo will most likely take a couple of weeks to complete (sometimes even months or longer). This largely depends on how elaborate the design is and pain tolerance. It is important that you allow healing time from swelling to get the best results.
